Spring Time!

Oh yes, Spring has officially started...well, like over a week ago officially, but here in Texas it's been pretty consistant since January in the 70's-80's. Today, it's close to 90! Here's hoping this summer isn;y like the last few...yikes!!

Since the weather has been so amazing I decided to make some spring cleaning plans. So far the kitchen has gotten a nice scrub down and the pantry re-organized. The living room got a mini make over earlier in the month since Nan & Gary bought Evan and I a flat screen TV for a joint birthday gift!! I plan on painting Averys room in the next 3 weeks before we leave for Portland but with my friend Megans wedding being in 2 weeks I'm not sure if this will happen this is getting busy again.

Dining room and master bedroom will be getting spruced up as well. Yeah, it's definetly spring time.

This weekend I got an itch to be outside, Evan and I took a look at the backyard and suddenly wanted to do some changes. After a call to the land lady who was super lax and gave us complete leeway, we headed off to Lowes. I planted a few flowers in a giant planter box that has been sitting idle on our front porch since we moved in almost a year ago! We also bought Avery a pool in which she happily swam naked for 2 hours yesterday in super cold water. *sigh* that girl is such a water baby. Today, Evan and I are pulling tons of ivy from all the yard filler and are debating on planting sod so we can put a swing set up soon. Might just plant more flower bushes and what not...I took the before shots today and will post the after and finished pics soon. I love weekends like this!!! We grilled steaks last night and watched Hop with Avery.

Here in a bit Avery is having a photo session with the amazing Sarah Null she did our family pictures a year ago. I'm super excited, she does great work and todays pictures are up the street in the huge Bluebonnet field!!! Check out Sarahs website . I'll share some when we get them. :)

In the meantime, I'll share some pictures from our weekend. Hope you are enjoying Spring time.

Avery picked them, she loooves flowers.

Swimming already.

Janie loves to play outside too. ;)
